We take the Safari 125 on a PAP Tinox Frame and put it through the paces. Taking off from Levante, we took a scenic circuit through the Twin Peaks, circling Lake Zahara before returning to Levante Landing field. The true joy of Paramotoring is all about flights like these. Skirting the crispy edges of the orographic clouds as they roll through the mighty towers on a still Sunday morning. We only hope all our test flights are as majestic.
The Tinox frame is simply a lightweight concept. The use of titanium ensures that the frame is not only lightweight but robust and safe. Shredding those few kilos greatly improves maneuverability on the ground. Take-off and landing seemed effortless with those few less kilograms. Once in flight, the Tinox feels similar to that of the racing frame.
The weight saving approach on the Tinox make it a very well designed and comfortable frame. Equipped with the safari 125 makes a brilliant cross country combo.
Power delivery of the 125 is smooth and progressive and has low vibrations at both low end revs and top end. The Tinox safari 125 is a light weight, portable motor ideal for leisure flying and cross country.
